This also has a very energetic "Man Smart."

Just a question, why have you people been telling me not to listen to 80's GD. LOL! This is a wild show.
Yes, Jerry's voice is bad; but what a powerhouse he is anyway!

Most of the shows from that decade are not good for your blood pressure. My doctor told me so.

most people just find the 80s to be post "epic psychedelia" and hence rate it as sub par, theres some merit to that judgement. But listening to some 80 and 89 made me remember how much I love that music. I do think dropping some acid and listening to a 72 show is gonna be better than an 80s show though, for obvious reasons.

deniro, there are more great 80s show than any of us could count. I just gotta hold it down for my late dead lovers, we're second class citizens ya know...

“most people just find the 80s to be post "epic psychedelia" and hence rate it as sub par”

I've never heard anyone cite that as one of the reasons. To me, the musicianship is just sub par compared to '66 – '74. One of the main factor's for me as well is Jerry's declining vocal abilities. His voice early on was such a joy to hear, and listening to his voice in most '80s shows just makes me sad. But yes, I admit there are still many incredible '80s show that I really enjoy. They just are much harder to come by compared to the early years.

I won't argue with that suggestion...Lake Acid - Been there done that - one of the most enjoyable days I've spent on this planet.

Great thread. I'll take the sugggestion, too, though I'm not going to do anything nearly so exciting while listening.

I'll shelve my idea of putting Throbbing Gristle's Hamburger Lady on endless loop (with the Exorcist on TV with the sound off - I hear they sync perfectly).

Don't think i have seen a Throbbing Gristle reference in 30 years! Had a roommate in my first year in college who was a huge fan. As a somewhat naive 17 year old, they initially scared the crap out of me. Although I thought Something Came Over Me was kind of funny.

If case you missed it, a flick on Genesis's grand romance/art project with Lady Jaye is just hitting theaters:
